Story Highlights

Since it launched in 2015, Chameleon has enabled thousands of computer scientists with the bare metal access they need to assemble and test new cloud computing approaches.

Under a new four-year, $10 million grant from the NSF, Chameleon will further broaden its scope, adding new features for reproducibility, IoT and networking experimentation, and GPU computation to its core mission.

In collaboration with the University of Chicago, TACC helped deploy Chameleon. Additional partners include Northwestern University and the Renaissance Computing Institute at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

TACC's role will continue to be in the design, procurement, and operation of the hardware within the testbed. Chameleon will continue to evolve with a range of computing, networking, and storage systems over the coming years, keeping the testbed relevant and cutting edge.
